The protea is by far the best and most comfortable hotel in Katima. It has clean comfortable rooms - the larger rooms are often available for a good deal to walk in guests so worth asking about those. The setting of the bar is amazing - views over the Zambezi watching hippos and crocs. Amazing. Highly recommend this place - breakfast buffet also pretty good value.

An old institution in Katima, with Protea comforts. A laid back option on the ever-beautiful Zambesi, with large, private bungalows along the riverside and a large, lazy pool, it offers a little luxury en-route, or while exploring the area. Drinks on the balcony, friendly staff and balmy evenings on the great Zambesi, it is not a place to be in a hurry (or expect super-reliable access to the internet), and rightly so. Thoroughly recommended for families too.

Stayed here for a night- 24th Jul 2011. The hotel location is on the banks of blue waters which was great to navigate. Very convenient for a stop-over after or before the caprivi strip drive.

An oasis on the road across the Caprivi strip. A nice clean Protea Hotel where you can expect a standard that should keep most people happy. Pity about the Ray Bans that disappeared off the table! Dining very average but adequate.

Room Tip: Try and get one facing the river. You can occasionally hear the hippos at night.

This is the second year I stay at this hotel while traveling around the Caprivi and it is my favourite. The views of the river at sunset are astonishing, the bungalows are ample and confortable and Kennedy is always smiling and ready to help you. The camping site is also very good and have all the facilities one might need. It is really worth to spend some days at this hotel and enjoy the scenery. Three thinks I enjoy everytime after being camping for a week: the wonderful breakfast, the confortable beds and the swimming pool.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms facing the river are fine.

I just want to tell everyone who thinking of going to Northern Namibia that Protea Hotel Zambesi River Lodge has the best camping site one can wish for. Wish we could stay there for longer but time did not let us extend our stay. The abblusion neat clean, the staff very friendly and the scenery absolute a stunning sight.
Thanks to Marcel and all the friendly staff for making our stay unforgettable.
You can be proud of yourself.
